Being a student in the Taunton Public School system for 12 years sculpted me into who I am today, an scholar who is prepared for college! I owe so much of my personal growth to TPS, as I was a member of many clubs and sports during my time in the school system. So many of the teachers are so caring and are willing to go out of their way to help you in anything you need.

Lots of teachers do care about the well being of students but lots also do not care. Administration wise discipline is rarely handled well and many students experience incorrect scheduling on the behalf of guidance counselors. Academically the school is struggling and almost every other month we have an announcement that an outside group is coming to evaluate the school and we have to lie about the condition of the school as a whole.
I was not the best but it was also not the worst. Massachusetts really cares about education more than other states, but you have to take advantage of the opportunities.
